More households in Kalinga energized under SEP

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, April 18 (PIA) -- More households in the province can now enjoy the benefits of electricity at home and in the community.


During the first quarter of this year, 106 households in various sitios in the province which are under the Kalinga-Apayao Electric Cooperative (KAELCO) Inc. franchise area were connected to the main grid.

KAELCO’S technical department also reported it plans to energize some 1,401 potential households in 50 sitios and puroks in the remaining months of 2018 under the Sitio Electrification Program (SEP).

Household energization in remote areas is supported by the National Electrification Administration and the Department of Energy.

Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi committed his full support to implement the directive of President Rodrigo Duterte to provide power to all of the remote, underserved or unserved areas in the Philippines.

The President, in his recent meeting with Cusi and Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) Chair Agnes Devenadera, made it clear that he wanted electrification in the unserved areas of the country and to remove the barriers that are blocking the entry of the private sector to provide better options and more choices for communities.
